Quitman County

E 9-1-1 Fund: $200,000

Awarded: 01/30/2007

Applicant: Clay County

E 9-1-1 funds to expand the Clay & Quitman E 9-1-1 Center to serve Randolph and Stewart Counties. Grant funds will be used to assist with mapping, signage and equipment purchases to expand the system. The Clay and Quitman E 9-1-1 Center, funded with a $400K grant in 2003, is located within the Clay County Sheriff's office. The applicant will use a centralized dispatching system in the four-county coverage area with a combined population of about 20,000 people. With such a large geographical footprint, the proposed four-county centralized dispatch is the most efficient approach to provide emergency medical services. The expansion of the two-county system into a four-county system represents significant progress in the development of regional collaboration and partnerships in one of Georgia's most economically challenged areas.
